> Is it possible to use Kismet to detect nearby wifi devices (like iphones etc?)? these devices would not be on the wifi network but would be responding to beacon frames.

If they send packets, and Kismet is on the channel they're using, it will detect them.

Handheld devices with wifi enabled will be probing for networks, and as such, will show up. In kismet-stable they'll be in the probing group, in kismet-git they'll show up as a probing device due to the new categorization code to handle phy-neutral.
